Spicy just how I like my winter brews. Was very surpised by this beer and I’m glad I have 5 more to drink throughout the coming winter, if they last that long. Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - NOV 20, 2004
I really enjoyed this brew, nice flavor, spicy,sweet. I got this in the winter pack, good choice for the price, just for the winter lager and old fezziwig, damn, I wish sam light would just dissappear! Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2004
Bottle at Plan B CPH. DK. had heard good things about thise one, bot was a bit dissapointed, not that it was bad, it was good, but not great. the bottle said Winter Lager 5.6%, but I gues it´s thise one. If not let me know, thanks! Deep amber color with a small head, medium hoppy fruity aroma and light sweet taste, medium body and light bitter dry finish. jzzbassman (1638) - Arlington, Texas, USA - NOV 19, 2004
Bottle in the winter pack. This one had a nutty/ spicy aroma, and looked great in a lager glass. A little on the sweet side, very malty, enjoyable. Jine (903) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - NOV 18, 2004
Bottle. This was in the winter celebration pack. Probably the best beer in the pack. I felt like the ghost of christmas past flew out and grabbed me (I hate Dickens).

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2005 This beer actually seperates itself from the Sam Adams pack in that it doesn’t taste like that standard Sam beer. It pours a dark amber shade with a really superb tan head that lasts. The tastes are a bit complex - dark, fruity, and tingy hops with some good grainy malts too. There’s a bit of caramel and maybe some plumb. The mouthfeel is thick and lightly carbonated. I don’t know much about the style, but this is a pretty good beer overall.

brownish/red tint pour. Carmel taste. No winter flavour here. Come on Sam Addy. You in Boston. you KNOW winter! vaaa. hoppy, nothing to stand out. Not much warmth to compliment a cold day. I guess I enjoyed it ok though. joshpiledean (316) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 14, 2004
Had a very pour with a quickly fading white head, ended up clear brown. Nose is kind of dull...not a lot going on here, just some malts. Some caramel flavor, sweet malts, maybe a little spice. Caramel aftertaste is long and nice. brentfeesh (1208) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - NOV 14, 2004
Can’t say a really care for this one. Smelled ricey to me (did not detect the "winter spices"). The color was nice and it looked clean. The taste was malty with a hint of nutmeg or somesuch spice. Overall very basic and one dimensional but better than their lite beer offering.
